    I deserve to be crucified

    I'm such a fucking loser. I tried to draw this guy like a thousand times and never came close. These were all done quickly but I was still trying here, so I'm a piece of shit and I'm posting this here as my punishment.

    drawing from a picture with out knowing the forms of the face makes it tough. You'd be better served learning more about the structure of the face from sources like Bridgeman and drawing a real skull. In short it takes time to draw a good face. A photo flattens a face all out making it dificult to put that 3d back into it in your drawing. Draw yourself in the mirror kind of stuff not photos.

    What Zazerzs said. And quit beating yourself up. Try drawing it with patients when you cool down. Churning out quickie after quickie and then beating yourself up over how it looks inaccurate is gonna get you nowhere. It will just fuel your rage... again.

    Find the bone structure, then distinguishing features.

    Crucifixion is pretty harsh, I'd say in between firing squad and drowning.

    turn it upside down and draw what you see not what you think you see.

    Hey, make peace with screwing up drawings or you'll be miserable. It takes a shitload of practice to get good and the times I toss off little quick drawings like this are generally times I'm afraid to fuck up if I slow down and really do my best--like my best won't be good enough. But so what if it isn't good enough? You'll always improve unless you quit.

    Now quitting--that's worth crucifixion.

    i believe the only one who needs crucifixion is Mel Gibson, and I dont think your attempts are as bad as him.

    For doing bad drawings? No. For starting a self-flagellating "look at me!" post in the lounge, instead of posting in one of the art sections where this belongs? Yes.
